Vehicle, deceased male found in ditch

A 48-year-old Cohasset man was found deceased in a vehicle in a ditch in Renville County Thursday, Dec. 14.
The Renville County Sheriff’s Office reported that it received a call about 10:32 a.m. that day regarding a vehicle that was on its roof at the bottom of a drainage ditch in a farm field north of Highway 212 about one-quarter mile east of Hector. The ditch was located in a farm field about one-fourth of a mile from any nearby road.
Personnel arriving on scene discovered that the vehicle was frozen into the ice, suggesting it had been there for some time prior to the emergency call. Upon moving the vehicle to access the interior, emergency workers found the body of Richard C. Bain, 48, of Cohasset. According to the sheriff’s office, it appeared that Bain had driven at least one-fourth of a mile across the tilled farm field before entering the ditch.
The sheriff’s office is continuing its investigation with assistance from the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office.
